Booked this hotel on a whim after seeing a few pictures of it and falling in love with how quaint it looked. I wasn't disappointed on arrival - situated in a beautiful 'chocolate box' village full of thatched cottages it is one of the most idyllic places I have ever been. The pub itself has ample parking and is very... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with family for my nephews wedding. 7 rooms were booked and every one of them very beautiful and all different. All food was tasty and well presented. Best of all the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely book a room here again.

Stayed for one night. Staff very friendly and efficient. Room gorgeous, immaculate and had everything you could need for one night. No phone signal which was OK for getting a bit of peace and quiet but could be a problem for some people. Beautiful area, quiet but near A1. Would love to stay again.

My husband and I have just returned from a two night getaway. One of the nights was spent here at The Crown Inn. We'd never heard of it before, and came across it by chance when googling sone hotels in the local area. I'm so pleased we chose this hotel. The location was beautiful, set in the quiet village of...

Like another reviewer here, I was on business locally, and couldn't get in to my normal choice (The George in Stamford) Hunting about for inspiration, I glossed over the rather faceless Marriott where I've stayed before, and stumbled across the Crown, and what a find! I can't comment on the evening meal, because we ate in the nearby Loch Fyne... More

The exterior of the thatched Crown Inn is very quaint. Its looks are enhanced by the lovely horse chestnut tree that stands directly in front of the building. My room, located in a separate annex behind the main building was tastefully decorated with beige/cream floral wallpaper. The comfortable brass bed was complimented with white painted tallboy, dressing table and bedside... More

I stayed for 1 night for a business trip. I usually stay in the bigger hotel chains but on this occasion I couldn't find any availability, luckily for me I came across this little treasure. I'm glad I tried it. A beautiful little place set in a very peaceful village. I stayed in one of the room directly above the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this beautiful looking pub, we went for Sunday lunch only. Excellent food and wine which was very well presented, all three courses were superb, could not fault any of it. The staff were all very friendly. Warm cosy atmosphere inside with the added bonus of a real fire. Nice bar area with good... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to pass on your kind comments. It was a pleasure having you and we look forward to your next visit with us. You're quite right about the area - the River Nene offers stunning walks, which my dogs and I have enjoyed for years! Thank you again. Yours Marcus More
